Customer Question

We ex spouse and are looking to amend our separation agreement, specifically the amount of spousal and child support being paid due to the fact that one of my children is now living with me. We have both agreed on the change, we are going to write our own amendment and sign. Do we also have to file with the court?
JA: OK. The Lawyer will need to help you with this. Anything else I can tell the Lawyer before I connect you two?
Customer: no that's it
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and connect you two.
